Trekking

Roopkund Trek

Summer:     11 days.
Roopkund is situated at a height of 5029m in the lap of Trishul massif. This is usually called the ‘Mystery Lake’ since human skeletons and remains of horses were found here.
The lake, surrounded by rock strewn glaciers and snow clad peaks, is magnificent and enchanting.
The mystery lake of Roopkund has brought here many a besotted traveler since the discovery of human skeletons in the lake and the glacier descending into it. For many years the origin of the skeletons remained a mystery. Some thought it to be the remains of General Zorawar’s Army that lost its way while returning from Tibet.
But the popular belief, narrated in the Folk traditions about the pilgrimage to Nanda Devi under taken by Raja Jasdhaval and his wife the Garhwali Princess Rani Balampa, who Perished in a hailstorm at Jurangali, Appears to be closer to the truth, especially since the carbon dating of the skeletons and its Anthological studies point towards the Authenticity off this folk-lore.
